3. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you use the services, we collect two types of information when you interact with the Services: Personal Information and Usage Data.
We define “Usage Data” as information about an individual’s activity on or through the Services that, by itself, does not reasonably identify the individual, such as browser type, operating system and webpages visited. Generally, we do not consider Usage Data as Personal Information because Usage Data by itself usually does not identify an individual. Your Usage Data may, however, be Personal Information under certain laws because, while only certain Personal Information directly identifies you, information we collect about you and your activities could be used to make inferences about you.
We may link Personal Information and Usage Data or different types of Usage Data. The linked information may identify an individual person. We also may link publically-available Personal Information, such as Personal Information available in public databases and through social networking websites like LinkedIn.
4. HOW WE COLLECT AND USE INFORMATION
We collect and use Personal Information for all lawful purposes in the operation and conduct of our business.
When you Contact Us: When you contact us, we may use the information you provide to respond to your questions, to try to resolve problems with one of our products, to complete transactions requested by you, to help us improve our customer service and to monitor and secure the Services. If you apply for employment with us, we use your information to process your job application and other related activities.
Through Service Providers: Third parties that assist us with our business operations also collect and use information through the Services and also may share the collected information with us. For example, our vendors collect and share information with us to analyze use of the Services, to help us detect and prevent fraud, to conduct targeted advertising, to improve user experience and to make our “Careers’ portal available for you and other users.
Through Mobile Applications: We may from time to time offer mobile applications (“Apps”). When we offer Apps, we may collect information about your use of and interaction with the App, such as operating system type, browser type, domain and other system settings, search queries, the country and time zone in which the mobile device or tablet is located, metadata and other information associated with other files stored on your device. We also may collect information about the location of the mobile device or tablet used to access the Services (“Location Data”). Location Data includes: (i) the location of the mobile device or tablet derived from GPS or WiFi use; (ii) the IP address of the mobile device or tablet or internet service used to access the Services, and (iii) other information made available by a user or others that indicates the current or prior location of the user. If you do not want us to collect Location Data from your device, please delete the App or disable the location settings on your device or tablet. Note, however, that disabling the location setting may affect your ability to access and use an App.
Your device manufacturer and mobile service provider also may have access to information about your use of an App. If you have questions about how your device manufacturer and mobile service provider use your information, please contact them directly.
5. COOKIES AND OTHER DATA COLLECTION TECHNOLOGY
We refer to cookies, pixel tags (also known as web beacons and clear GIFs) and other similar technology as “Data Collection Technology.”
Cookies are small text files that are sent to or accessed from your web browser or your computer’s hard drive. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain (internet location) from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e., when it expires) and a randomly generated unique number or similar identifier. A cookie also may contain information about your computer, such as user settings, browsing history and activities conducted while using the Services. A web beacon (also called a pixel tag or clear GIF) is a piece of computer code that enables us to monitor user activity and website traffic. To learn more about cookies and web beacons, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
How We Use Data Collection Technology: Data Collection Technology helps us improve your experience of the Services by, for example, storing your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you use the Services, measuring the success of marketing campaigns, compiling statistics about use of the Services and helping us analyze technical and navigational information about the Services and to detect and prevent fraud.
The Services use the following cookies:
- Strictly necessary cookies, which are required for the operation of the Services. Without them, for example, you would not be able to register or log in for the Services that we may offer.
- Analytical/performance cookies, which allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors, to learn how visitors navigate the Services and to help us to improve the way Services function.
- Functionality cookies, which are used to recognize you when you return to the Services.
- Targeting cookies, which record your visits to the Services, the pages you visited and the links you followed. Targeting cookies helps us and our advertising partners to deliver ads or messages that are relevant to you and your interests. We may also share this information with third parties to identify and send you relevant messages.
- Interaction cookies, which allow you to recommend us on Social Media.
We also use Google Analytics which is a Google service that uses Data Collection Technology to collect anonymous information about use of the Services and report website trends. Google Analytics does not identify individual users. We may use an enhancement to Google Analytics called “Demographics and Interest Reporting,” through which Google provides us with information about our users’ demographics (e.g., age, gender) and interests. This information, which Google may collect by tracking a user’s behavior across third-party websites, helps us to learn more about our users. You can learn about Google’s practices in connection with this enhanced tracking and opt out of it by visiting www.google.com/settings/ads or by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
We also may use other Data Collection Technology to collect information from the computer or device that you use to access the Services, such as your operating system type, browser type, domain and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone in which your computer or device is located.
Your Control of Cookies: Some web browsers (including some mobile web browsers) provide settings that allow you to control or reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer, tablet or mobile device. You also may be able to reject mobile device identifiers by activating the appropriate setting on your mobile device. Although you are not required to accept cookies or mobile device identifiers, if you block or reject them, you may not have access to all features available through the Services.
Interest-Based Advertising: We support the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising of the Digital Advertising Alliance (“Principles”). This means that we allow you to exercise choice regarding the collection of information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites for interest-based advertising purposes. More information about the Principles is available at www.aboutads.info.
If you want to “opt out” of receiving interest-based advertisements, please follow the instructions at www.aboutads.info/choices or http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. An “opt-out” cookie will be stored on your computer indicating that you do not want to receive interest-based advertisements. If you delete cookies on your computer generally, you will delete the opt-out cookie and must opt out again. Please note that after you opt out of receiving interest-based advertisements, you may still see digital advertisements from us but those ads are not based on your interests as inferred from your online activity.
Certain third parties that we do not control may use Data Collection Technology on the Services. When you opt out of receiving interest-based advertisements through one of the links above, these third parties’ Data Collection Technology still may collect information about your use of the Services, including for analytics, fraud prevention and any other purpose permitted under the Principles.
Our Policy On Do Not Track Signals: Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have his or her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain Personal Information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many website operators, including us, do not respond to DNT signals.
6. HOW WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may share Personal Information collected via the Services as follows.
- Service Providers: We share information with our third-party service providers that help us operate the Services, such as by sending emails, Conducting advertising, providing customer service or product support, and administering incentive programs and promotions.

The Services are not directed to or intended for use by minors. Consistent with the requirements of the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, if we learn that we have received any information directly from a child under age 13 without his or her parent’s verified consent, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or his or her parent or legal guardian) to inform the child that he or she cannot use the Services.
